Well, we finally made it to London and we got bonus points because it was Christ-massy London! Yes, we shopped on Oxford Street, saw the guards play holiday songs at Buckingham Palace, and went ice skating at Somerset House. We even rode on the red double-deckers, wiping their steamy windows just barely clean enough to get views of Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, the London Eye, and Big Ben.
We stayed in a neighborhood called Brixton, and the bus home, the 159, went right though all of those iconic places. It was on that bus home and at the ultra-cool and gritty Brixton Village market, with a mouth full of Chinese dumplings or Thai food, where I fell a little in love with London. I sure hope there's room for one more on the bandwagon.
